Karuna Wellness Collaborative was founded in 2021 by Kelsey Walsh.

karuṇā [kuh-roo-nah]

Karuṇā is a Sanskrit word that is generally translated to compassion, mercy or self-compassion.  It is a significant spiritual concept in Indic faiths including Hinduism and Buddhism. One definition from Theravada Buddhism defines karuṇā as the aspiration to find a way to be truly helpful to oneself and others.

We picked this name because with compassion for ourselves and others we can truly love & accept ourselves and those around us thus contributing to our own life-long wellbeing and the betterment of the world as a whole.
